Description of the offer

mod.io is the world’s most trusted platform for the creation and discovery of fully cross-platform User-Generated Content (UGC) and mods in video games.

Many of the industries most innovative and successful games have UGC at their core. We’re talking about Counter-Strike, DotA, and PUBG. These games have become house-hold names and that same innovation is what drives us.

 We are a fast-growing, early-stage startup, backed by leading video game venture capital firms including LEGO Ventures, Tencent, and Makers Fund.

Our mission is to connect game studios and publishers with their communities by harnessing the power of UGC. And we’re doing it; our platform is embedded in over 150 games, including some of the biggest and best games in the world. Games like Deep Rock Galactic, Snowrunner, and Dying Light 2, and we support over six-and-a-half-million monthly users.

What is the role?

You will be part of a team working on our Unity Plugin and C# SDK which assist game developers to integrate the mod.io service in their game:

  • Maintain and improve our Unity Plugin and C# SDK that provides user, download, and request management services and provides a front-end to our REST API service
  • Work alongside our core REST API and web developers to provide insightful feedback and suggestions on how we can improve from the perspective of game development.
  • Manage feedback and communication with partners and other developers to foster a responsive and task-oriented support system.
  • Test and implement your design on Linux, Mac, Windows, consoles and mobile to create a cross-platform solution.
  • Create a defensive, robust solution that fails gracefully, caches smartly to minimize API calls and provides useful logging to allow developers to debug.
  • Keep your house clean, your code will be open sourced on GitHub and must be well documented for our community to fork and adapt as they need.

Your responsibilities include:

  • Develop code for the plugin and SDK in line with our agile process including testing
  • Provide regular updates to senior leadership on progress and any issues
  • Support games to onboard by answering questions from game developers and building required (agreed) functionality
  • Provide 2nd level support
  • Act as an escalation point for Security & Cloud/Infrastructure incidents
  • Work closely with development teams and project to assist with their security and operational asks

Why work at mod.io?

We’re very ambitious in what we want to achieve as a company, and we work closely together to achieve our goals.

  • We’re transparent and honest, and our focus is on getting things done in the most efficient way possible – if something is slowing us down, we want to know about it and fix it.
  • We’re a small team with 35 people globally. This means there are always opportunities both to shape your role and also how we do things.
  • We offer maximum flexibility – you can work hours based on your location and choose where you work – work from home (WFH) or away (any location), or enjoy the perks of our brand new office in Prahran if you’re in Melbourne.
We provide a competitive salary and equity in the company
  • We value the career development of our people; we look to hire within when opportunities arise, and provide mentorship and support for all our team.
  • We’re very proud that we have a safe, transparent working environment where everyone is welcome, and we encourage people from all backgrounds to apply for jobs with us.

What are we looking for in candidates?

We are looking for humble, enthusiastic, self-starters who take ownership over what they create and will help us shape and improve the company. Even if you don’t match the qualifications exactly, if you’re confident you can do the job, or can grow into the role, please throw your hat in the ring.

  • Excitement to dig in and experiment, with real attention to detail.

It would be awesome if you also have:

  • An understanding of the unique challenges UGC presents us and similar businesses like Youtube and Steam
